3 Layers of Promotion

I'm doing two marketing posts back to back this week. Today, I'll be at Tony Eldridge's blog talking about the three layers of promotion. I hope you'll find it useful.

Tony has a terrific blog dedicated to marketing tips for authors. He always has excellent guests at his place who share their marketing experience and expertise. If you're an author, you'll want to put his blog on your RSS feed.


This blog tour seems to have a black cloud following it. Blogger really rained on my parade. ParaJunkee lost its post (but recovered it and the comments) and The Galaxy Express lost its comments. I don't think they've  recovered them yet. I'll check with Heather as Friday rolls around.

But you still have a chance to enter at either blog until May 20th.

Friday will be the last day of the blog tour. 

Here's where I've been:

Thursday: ParaJunkee
Tuesday: 'My First Book' with Misha where I'll talk about world building.
Wednesday: 'RT Reviews' Chicken Zombie Apocalypse
Thursday: The three layers of promotion at 'Tony Eldridge'.

Question for the authors out there: Have you ever been on a blog tour riddled with potholes?

Heading over. BTW, tried commenting on the RT Review site yesterday but either the site didn't like me or the zombie chicken kept eating my comment(which had something to do with the "oy"). It was a great post.

Madeleine said...

Great schedule. Great posts. :O)

Linda: Both your comments got through. The Zombie Chicken was only try to fool you.

Actually the RT blog has a terrible comment system. It's so complicated. I don't like jumping through hoops. Thanks for coming out there.

Madeleine: Thanks!

I'll check it out a bit later today. I always enjoy your posts, Maria.

You didn't happen to go digging in any egyptian tombs lately, did you?


Maria Zannini said...

Shelley: Thank you!

Charlie: LOL! I wouldn't doubt I've released a curse somewhere along my travels.

Well, ya know, the world IS ending on Saturday! Maybe blogger was just trying to prepare itself for emminent (is that the right spelling?) doom =P

I’m sorry to hear about your blog tour being ruined. Blogger messed with many author’s blog tours. I haven’t had time to blog lately but I’m about to read all your blogs from the last week today.
